Why visit an EDP production centre?

The EDP programme to visit its production centres is part of the company's corporate social responsibility actions and seeks to establish a transparent, open and close contact with the community. The visit is an opportunity to learn more about the activities of the company and the different electricity generation processes.


Who can take part in the EDP Visit Programme?

The visits are aimed mainly at students in compulsory and upper secondary education and at university, along with anybody belonging to different associations, institutions, neighbours' associations, etc., who want to learn about the EDP production centres and request the visit.


What is the minimum age to go on the visit?

School children, 14 and over. In other words, from the 3rd year of ESO (compulsory secondary education).


What are the requirements for the visit?

The school must have the relevant authorisation of each student or, as applicable, of their parents and/or guardians, to go on the visit. The minimum recommended age is 8 years old to ensure that the visitors can understand and internalise the production processes.
